    I need a little help understanding Beretta Trap barrels for their autoloading guns.

    What is the difference between a "Trap" barrel and a "Super Trap" barrel?

    I am still a little confused. I just bought a 30" "Super Trap" barrel for my AL-390. It is NOT ported. I wrote to Beretta USA and they told me that Beretta has never made factory ported barrels.

    So what does the "Super Trap" marking mean?

    Whoever you spoke with at Beretta is clueless which is far from surprising. Does it say super trap or super sport? All of the super sport barrels I have seen were factory ported. Those designated sporting or just trap were not factory ported.

    It is my understanding that the barrels made over there can not be ported and then imported into the US. Has to do with proofing. They can only be ported after they arrive in the US.

    I have two factory Beretta 390 barrels with the words Super Trap on them and both are factory ported,tubed and tapered rib.

    So do I have a Super Trap barrel that someone has cut down and re-threaded for Mobil chokes?

    The length isn't stamped on the barrel?
